I soft-modded my Wii a while back and just want to return it to the original state, I'm not using enough home-brew to justify the mod. The main reason I wanted a soft-mod Wii was for the Fatal Frame 4 Translation. but looks like you don't need a soft modded Wii for that patch.
So I followed this guide.
and followed the steps as perfectly as I could
The only problem I had with was the CleanNand. I could not get it to run or do anything. If i ran it on the home brew channel just freezes at a blank screen.
So I skipped that and continued to remove BootMii and the home brew channel.
I then formatted the Wii's system memory and updated and at 4.2U and no problems or Bricks.
is my Wii really back to the virgin state now? or because clean Nand didn't finish/run is it not?
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
